 Good question - a couple of the top players aren't playing. Could be the course design, could be their prep for Augusta. You'd think Lefty would honor AP by showing up as well.

Scott -10...does anyone know if he just chipped in or was it a putt?

 


hard to tell on shot tracker - you can be sure that GC will show his highlights several times over......has a makeable 6 footer on his second to last hole.

Just saw Bubba has WD. I hate to speculate, because it could be injury or something else, but the more of his antics I see, the more I find him one of the biggest babies on tour. I understand you shot an 83, with an 11 on the card. But you are at Arnold Palmer's tournament, and you stay and try your best for two rounds.

Ya I know huh. I used to like Bubba, thought he played great when he won the Masters. But now he's just being a prick the past couple years, always whining about something.

Patrick Reed only shot -3?

 

Surprising, as he's won 3 times on tour in the last 7 months, won the 2006 Junior British open, led University High to state championships in both 2006 and 2007, won the state medalist honors in 2007, and he earned Rolex AJGA All-America honors in 2005, 2006 and 2007. Then he helped lead Augusta State to NCAA Division I Golf Championship in 2010 and 2011 and also advanced to the semifinals of the 2008 U.S. Amateur.

 

Also, he's a top 5 player in the world, so I expected a lot more.

Don't forget, saved money on caddy fees by making his wife do it...probably switched to Geico too.

haha indeed, via twitter he blamed it on his allergies. Twice. At least he didn't blame his caddie.

Really not much to talk about there.

Trevino on anchored putting: 'It's like cheating'.....'Now I see why they want to make this one illegal,' he added. 'It's like cheating. I swear to God. This is the easiest thing I've ever seen to putt with, is that belly putter.'

So? There's not much to discuss. Surely you're aware of the fact that it's been made illegal as of 2016, right? We've even got a whole big thread for it:
